What can you expect from this product.

  • Supplementing “Essential Amino Acids” (EAA) in combination with exercise increases lean body mass, muscle strength and anabolic support for recovery. On top, we added extra BCAA in perfect 2:1:1 balance for maximum muscle building.
  • Your body needs these essential amino-acids to be kept intact in their natural form, so that they can be incorporated as building blocks in your muscle. They are not used as fuel, and because no chemical bonds are broken, they do not produce any calories and therefore this product has ZERO calories.
  • For vegans EAA are even more important because plant based protein lack 3- specific essential amino acids, L-Lysine, L-Leucine and L-Methionine. Supplementing these 3 missing amino acids will turn plant based protein in high quality proteines
  • The additional creatine increases endurance and strength and results in increased lean muscle mass.
  • Undenatured collagen II decreased rate of inflammation, reverses the effects of damage to the joints and muscles, reduces exercise induced pain and speeds up recovery time after work-out.
  • Vitamin C is a crucial cofactor for the synthesis of collagen and carnitine, another substance that is found in high amounts in muscle tissue and is required to burn fatty acids for energy.

As all vegetarians the problem is the lack of some essential amino acids. I dissolve a sachet in a bottle water and have a glass with every meal to fill in the gaps of missing essential amino acids. My energy levels went up in days

This will soon replace all protein shakes. Very nice ingredients formulation, clearly designed for muscle building.

Instructions: Dissolve the contents of 1 sachet into approximately 500 ml water. Shake well before drinking. A standard recommendation is to consume one or maximum two sachets a day. For vegans or vegetarians it is important to add some EAA with meals, this is easily done because our product easily dissolves in water, so just a thee spoon in a small glass water with every meal will highly increase top quality protein intake without extra calories. For athletes, 30 min before, during and post workout will increase recuperation and muscle growth.

In comparison, one sachet contains a simlar amount of essential amino acids as eating a 300 gr portion of meat.

What are amino-acids and why are they so important for muscle building and fat loss

Amino-acids are the building blocks of all tissues, including muscle. Proteins are made of a combination of different amino-acids, which are lined up and folded  into a tri dimensional structure to accomplish their function. Amongst all the amino-acids that the body needs, 9 of them are essential. This means the body cannot make these essential amino-acids (EAA) itself, and therefore they need to be absorbed from an external source of food. 

Proteins are the only food source that deliver Nitrogen and essential amino-acids to our body, but unlike glycogen or fat, proteins cannot be stored as a reserve in our body. This means that the full spectrum including all essential amino-acids must be available when the body needs to maintain or repair a muscle, or any other structure for that matter. If one of the amino-acids is missing, the body has no other choice than to break down muscle elsewhere to obtain the necessary building blocks. That is why the quality of the protein we eat is so important: it must include all the essential amino-acid to avoid muscle loss.

The composition of a protein and the contents of essential amino-acids (it´s biological value) is the main factor that determines it´s quality. The latest most accurate standard that is used to measure the quality of a protein is its Digestible Indispensable Amino Acid Score (DIAAS), which considers both the biological value and the amount that is absorbed by the body. Animal sources of protein are better digested than plant-based proteins. Therefore, food like eggs, milk and meat provide a higher content in bio-available and essential amino-acids than plant based proteins. Vegetarians and vegans are especially at risk of falling short on one or another essential amino-acid, but an additional intake of EAA supplement benefits everyone who wants to power-up their anabolic capacity and increase muscle mass.

Why does this product have no calories

To answer this questions we must first look at “what are calories” ? A calorie is an amount of energy. In biological molecules, energy is stored in chemical bonds. Sugars, fats and proteins contain energy in their structure. When the body uses these molecules as fuel, what really happens is that through metabolic reactions these molecules are broken up in smaller pieces (burned), and the energy that is stored in their chemical bonds is released. This equals to approximately 4 calories per gram of sugar, or per gram of protein, and 9 calories per gram of fat. Now, when we look at essential amino-acids, the story is different: your body needs these essential amino-acids to be kept intact in their natural form, so that they can be incorporated as building blocks in your muscle. They are not used as fuel, and because no chemical bonds are broken, they do not produce any calories.

What is creatine

Creatine is an amino-acid that is present in muscles. It has a very important function as a provider of energy for the muscles. Creatine is used by to body to store high amounts of energy by adding a chemical bonds with phosphate groups in the form of phosphocreatine. This molecule is then stored in the muscle for when it is needed. Creatine is naturally produced by the body, so it is not an essential amino-acid, but if you want to boost your muscles you need a lot of it. Supplementing your diet with additional intake of creatine increases endurance and strength and results in increased lean muscle mass.

What is undenatured collagen II

Collagen is a very large molecular structure, naturally produced in the body, that is important to maintain a firm matrix for tissues like muscle, tendons, cartilage and skin. In sports, it is especially important to keep a high level of collagen in order to prevent muscle or joint damage. Unfortunately, as with many other bio-molecules, our body contains less and less of collagen as we age. This is mostly because the body starts to break it down at a faster rate than it is being produced. Most collagen supplements that are on the market are presented in a “hydrolysed” form (broken up in very tiny pieces). In this form, it needs to be consumed in very large amounts. Moreover, instead of slowing down the rate of collagen degradation, it may even be accelerating this process with more negative effects over time. But when taken in its natural “undenatured high molecular weight” (in its native large structure, not broken up in pieces) only a small daily intake has great effects because it works in a different way. In a process called oral tolerance, a small dosage of undenatured collagen is taken to train your body’s immune system to stop attacking its own collagen. On top of that, this form of collagen contains active immune modulators that reduce the secretion of enzymes that break down collagen, thereby slowing the inflammatory response. The decreased rate of inflammation reverses the effects of damage to the joints and muscles, reduces exercise induced pain and speeds up recovery time after work-out.


Why is vitamin C important for muscle building, in combination with collagen

Vitamin C is well known to boost the immune system, but few people know that it also plays an important active role in the production of collagen. Vitamin C is an essential cofactor for the two enzymes that are required for collagen synthesis: prolyl hydroxylase (to stabilize the collagen molecule) and lysyl hydroxylase (to give it structural strength by cross-linking the molecules).

This vitamin is also a crucial cofactor for the synthesis of carnitine, another substance that is found in high amounts in muscle tissue and is required to burn fatty acids for energy.

On top of that, vitamin C by itself is a powerful antioxidant that deals with inflammation and as such prevent muscle breakdown.
